Donna is a current candidate for a Master’s in Public Administration at MIIS. She completed the Frontier Market Scouts training early this past summer and was off to Rwanda for the remainder. She joined Resonate, an organization that teaches leadership skills to women and girls through storytelling, as the Operations Fellow.
Before coming to MIIS, Donna committed her heart and energy to the anti-human trafficking movement, a career that was inspired by her family’s own migration story. Most recently, she headed the anti-human trafficking unit at the SAGE Project, a nonprofit in San Francisco. She has also worked to combat trafficking in Washington, D.C. and Israel.
With deep passion and compassion for gender issues, she seeks to continue her career by enabling more sustainable pathways for women and girls to both determine and tell their own stories.
